July 7, 2015 -- The American College of Radiology (ACR) has created the ACR Commission on Patient Experience to help radiology professionals promote patient- and family-centered care.

Chaired by Dr. James Rawson of Augusta, GA, the commission is also intended to enhance relationships with patient advocacy groups.

The commission's goals are as follows:

  • Develop recommendations on how radiology practices can improve the experiences of patients and their families
  • Provide information on how to measure radiology patient outcomes
  • Work with other ACR commissions to develop tools, metrics, and policy to help members meet merit-based incentive payment system and alternative payment model requirements
  • Work closely with the RSNA Radiology Cares campaign
